Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I announce that I cease all development and activity in the programming universe indefinitely. My career has reached the turning point I was not expecting for at least another year, leaving me highly off guard and without laid-out plans for this hobby's continuity. I have begun a 5-year residency program in Neurosurgery which is clearly not compatible, time-wise, with programming.

I gave in all my passion for developing, and you gave me back your loyalty and trust, even when I did not deserve that much. Now it is the time for payback. I release all my present and past work as Open Source software, in the hope some talented developer will continue maintaining and expanding my vision of a modern, sleek forum software. The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.

I hereby thank Euan, kawaii, andrewjs18, Ben, Matt, Omar G., effone, Eric J., Devilshakerz, Wildcard, JordanMussi and all the other team members I have had the opportunity to work with when I was a MyBB team member. I thank Tomm M, my mentor, who inspired me to pick up coding with his piece-of-art plugins. And finally, I thank all of you MyBBoost subscribers who have helped me getting through my toughest university years economically.

Yours sincerely, Filippo

    I was thinking of something around the following lines:
    $plugins->add_hook('parse_message_end', 'quickreferences_parse_message_end');
    function quickreferences_parse_message_end(&$message)
    global $mybb, $plugins;

    if(defined('THIS_SCRIPT') && THIS_SCRIPT == 'xmlhttp.php' && $mybb->get_input...

    I see, yes, it should work. Ideally this could be handled from within QuickReferences but I could push a PR for your consideration at a later time.

    I understand this isn't a priority right now but maybe you can fix compatibility with the following plugin in the future:

    Basically, quick preview isn't parsing the tags.
